Sadie manages to bind him and unbind Carter and Zia. Sadie manages to capture the shadow and they turn back to Setne, but he disappeared, bindings and all. However, they have bigger problems: the shadow called for reinforcements and an army of demons are marching toward them. Tawaret arrives with the gods from the Fourth House Sunny Acres and saves them from a tragic death. The fight gave the old gods and goddesses a purpose, and Bes has returned to his old ugly self, just in time to get them to Ra's sun barge, which is just passing by.
When they get on board, Ra is still old and senile, but is reborn as a more fit old man once he merges with Zia. They arrive in Giza to find Bast distracting Apophis as best as she can. The rebel magicians are already there, guarding the door to the Hall of Ages, where Amos is trapped with the hit squad. When they enter, Amos holds his own against the magicians because he is now the host of Set, and manages to keep Set's power in check.
Sadie and Carter channel Isis and Horus and join the fight, but they're all subdued. Her lieutenant, Kwai channels Apophis, and is killed, but manages to cast one last spell "bring down" to destroy the Nome.
Sadie channels Isis' power and manages to speak the most difficult Word of Power of all: "Ma'at" and restores the Nome, passing out in the process.
In order to do the execration, they must face the serpent. Zia escapes, blowing up Apophis' head in the process but the gods have to withdraw, as Chaos and Ma'at are so intertwined that by pushing away and banishing Chaos, the forces of Ma'at must also be pushed away.
Though Ra has returned, he offers Horus the throne, and Carter takes the throne of the Pharaoh in the First Nome as well. Walt has gone missing, and Bast and Bes have also withdrawn.
Their father is just happy that they're alive and succeeded in saving the world. Because Walt is Anubis' eye and mortal host, he doesn't have to withdraw from the world and can stay with Sadie.
Carter takes Zia out on a date in the Mall of America. She tells him that she will be staying in Brooklyn House. They share a passionate kiss and start a relationship. Setne is still on the loose with the Book of Thoth and Brooklyn House has had an influx of initiates, as have most of the Nomes in the world.
They explain that they'll be so busy that there probably won't be any more recordings. The book ends with an invitation to anyone with pharaoh's blood to join the House of Life. He is one of the main protagonists, and is initially described as always dressing "impeccably" in dress shirts and pants due to the influence of his father, Julius, but relaxes into a more modern style as the series progresses. He has dark skin, curly dark brown hair and brown eyes, more closely resembling his African-American father than his white mother.
After the death of his mother, he spent six years travelling with his father. His speciality is combat magic and his preferred weapon is a khopesh, an ancient Egyptian sword. His girlfriend is Zia Rashid.
Sadie Kane : A host of Isis. She is described to have blue eyes and caramel hair, neither brunette nor blonde. As she stays in England and more closely resembles her white mother than her African-American father, her skin is paler than Carter's and has a slight British accent. Her father gave her a cat whom she named Muffin, although it is actually the goddess Bast who is the protector of the Kane siblings. And it came to pass that Satan cried with a loud voice, with weeping, and wailing, and gnashing of teeth; and he departed hence.
In his letter to the Hebrews, the Apostle Paul was trying to encourage new members who had just joined the Church, who undoubtedly had had spiritual experiences and had received the pure light of testimony, only to discover that not only had their troubles not ended, but that some of them had only begun.
It reminds me of President Hugh B. He said he had always been told that when he got married he would come to the end of his troubles. So he got married, only to discover they were speaking about the front end. I am not through with you this morning! Paul pled with those new members about the way President Hinckley is pleading with new members today. The reminder is that we cannot sign on for a moment of such eternal significance and everlasting consequence without knowing it will be a fight—a good fight and a winning fight, but a fight nevertheless.
For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. If any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. We are not of them who draw back unto perdition. I suppose every returned missionary and probably every convert within the sound of my voice knows exactly what I am talking about: appointments for discussions canceled, the Book of Mormon in a plastic bag hanging from a front-door knob, baptismal dates not met.
And so it goes through the teaching period, through the commitments, through the baptism, through the first weeks and months in the Church, and more or less forever. At least the adversary would pursue it forever, if he thought he could see any weakening of your resolve or any chink in your armor—even if it is after the fact.
This opposition turns up almost anyplace something good has happened.
It can happen when you are trying to get an education. It can hit you after your first month in your new mission field. It certainly happens in matters of love and marriage. Now I am back to those returned missionaries. And I certainly am not saying that a young man can get a revelation that he is to marry a certain person without that young woman getting the same confirmation. Yes, there are cautions and considerations to make, but once there has been genuine illumination, beware the temptation to retreat from a good thing.
If it was right when you prayed about it and trusted it and lived for it, it is right now.
You can find an apartment. You can win over your mother-in-law. You can sell your harmonica and therein fund one more meal. He wants everyone to be miserable like unto himself. Face your doubts. Master your fears. To help us make our way through these experiences, these important junctures in our lives, let me draw from another scriptural reference to Moses.
It was given in the early days of this dispensation when revelation was needed, when a true course was being set and had to be continued. Virtually everyone in the room knows the formula for revelation given in section 9 of the Doctrine and Covenants—you know, the verses about studying it out in your mind and the Lord promising to confirm or deny.
God will teach us in a reasonable way and in a revelatory way—mind and heart combined, by the Holy Ghost. Or the example from the book of Moses we just used?
Or the vision of the brother of Jared? Here he had another purpose in mind. Usually we think of revelation as information. Just open the books to us, Lord, like: What was the political significance of the Louisiana download or the essence of the second law of thermodynamics? It is obvious that when you see those kinds of questions on a test paper, you need revelation.
Someone said prayer will never be eliminated from the schools so long as there are final examinations. First of all, revelation almost always comes in response to a question, usually an urgent question—not always, but usually. In that sense it does provide information, but it is urgently needed information, special information.
There were chariots behind them, sand dunes on every side, and just a lot of water immediately ahead. They glanced down at us, and I noticed their eyes were glowing. Hieroglyphs were painted on their cheekbones like war paint. Alyssa whispered to me: "What's up with their eyes? Since her patron was the earth god Geb, she liked solid things, such as stone and clay. She didn't like heights or deep water.
She definitely didn't like the idea of the Duat - the magical realm that coexisted with ours.
Once, when I'd described the Duat as an ocean under our feet with layers and layers of magical dimensions going down forever, I thought Alyssa was going to get seasick. Ten-year-old Felix, on the other hand, had no such qualms. Alyssa laughed. Which is - " "Agh! Leave it to a baboon to have perfect astronomical sense. Two magicians stood guard with ful-grown leopards on leashes. Carter looked at JD in astonishment.
Now, which artifact did you want to see? I'll show you. Inside, the exhibit was extensive, but I doubt you care about the details. A labyrinth of rooms with sarcophagi, statues, furniture, bits of gold jewelry - blah, blah, blah. I would have passed it all by. I've seen enough Egyptian colections to last several lifetimes, thank you very much.
Besides, everywhere I looked, I saw reminders of bad experiences. We passed cases of shabti figurines, no doubt enchanted to come to life when caled upon. I'd kiled my share of those.
We passed statues of glowering monsters and gods whom I'd fought in person - the vulture Nekhbet, who'd once possessed my Gran long story ; the crocodile Sobek, who'd tried to kill my cat longer story ; and the lion goddess Sekhmet, whom we'd once vanquished with hot sauce don't even ask.
Most upsetting of al: a small alabaster statue of our friend Bes, the dwarf god. The carving was eons old, but I recognized that pug nose, the bushy sideburns, the potbely, and the endearingly ugly face that looked as if it had been hit repeatedly endearingly ugly face that looked as if it had been hit repeatedly with a frying pan.
We'd only known Bes for a few days, but he'd literaly sacrificed his soul to help us. Now, each time I saw him I was reminded of a debt I could never repay. I must have lingered at his statue longer than I realized.
The rest of the group had passed me and were turning into the next room, about twenty meters ahead, when a voice next to me said, "Psst! I thought the statue of Bes might have spoken. Then the voice caled again: "Hey, dol. Listen up. Not much time. He had a beak of a nose, cruel thin lips, and a high forehead. Though he was the same color as the wal, he seemed very much alive. His blank eyes managed to convey a look of impatience. You need my help. He reminded me of a character from those sily Mafia movies the boys at Brooklyn House liked to watch in their spare time - someone's Uncle Vinnie, perhaps.
The man snorted. Like there's The man snorted. Like there's anybody who doesn't know. You've got two days until they put me down. You want to defeat Apophis, you'd better pull some strings and get me out of here.
The man didn't sound like Set the god of evil, or the serpent Apophis, or any of the other vilains I'd dealt with before, but one could never be sure. There was this thing caled magic, after al. The man jutted out his chin. You want a show of faith. You'll never save the scroll, but go for the golden box. That'll give you a clue about what you need, if you're smart enough to understand it.
Day after tomorrow at sunset, dol. Then my offer expires, 'cause that's when I get permanently - " He choked. His eyes widened. He strained as if a noose were tightening around his neck. He slowly melted back into the wal. Of course not, I thought. What fun would it be if other people saw my vision of Uncle Vinnie? Then I couldn't wonder if I were going stark raving mad. The entrance to the next room was flanked by two giant obsidian The entrance to the next room was flanked by two giant obsidian sphinxes with the bodies of lions and the heads of rams.
Carter says that particular type of sphinx is caled a criosphinx. We were all dying to know that bit of useless information. I'll need to modify them to let you through. Carter puled me aside. Probably just one of Apophis's tricks, but Walt was staring at a golden throne in a glass case. He leaned forward with one hand on the glass as if he might be sick. I moved to Walt's side. Light from the exhibit bathed his face, turning his features reddish brown like the hils of Egypt.
I read the display card.
